Cyber Blue 234 Drive System Test - Performance and Power
by: Chris Fultz
This is a report on testing complete by FRC Team 234 to evaluate performance and power consumption of 2, 4 and 6 CIM, and also 4 CIM + 2 Mini-CIM drives. The 2015 roboRIO was used for data capture.
In the fall of 2014, Cyber Blue 234 completed a series of acceleration and top speed tests of multiple motor combinations in a controlled experiment. The testing competed 2, 4, 6 CIM and 4 CIM + 2 Mini-CIM drives for a stand alone robot and for that same robot pushing a 130 pound, unpowered robot. The new roboRIO was used for the testing, and it allowed capture of Voltage and Amperage, as well as other robot data.
